Casper is listed at 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, is a strong backstop with a gifted defensive skill set. Casper is one of the few catchers this winter who was able to record pop times below 2.00 (1.93 low), throwing a respectable 76 mph down to second from a quick release. At the plate, Casper worked out of balanced, and crouched setup with 70 mph barrel speed, staying short to the ball with a pre-set barrel, and working from above with a tight swing arc. Casper notably had good feel for his barrel release, and marked a max exit around 91.4 mph.

A wiry 5-foot-8, 170-pound backstop who showed particularly well on defense Sunday, especially as a freshman. He’s a confident receiver unfazed by velocity, capable of catching older/stronger pitchers comfortably, and his quick, athletic feet and transfers helped him pop in the low-2.00s on target. There’s upside in his loose right-handed swing, too, and he hit one ball on a shallow line to left at 92.0 mph.
